Fragrance-Free Viennese Shaving Soap
Viennese Shaving Soap. For Women and Men.
This unscented shaving soap is made in Vienna by hand. It's manufactured in the cold stir process, a recently developed method for soap manufacture, in which all the ingredients, including the moisturising glycerine, are retained in the soap. The heat which is created by the combination of lye and oil is used for the alkaline hydrolysis process. Only pure vegetable oils are used: gentle coconut oil, castor oil and avocado and grapeseed oil, along with cocoa butter. Since the Viennese shaving soap contains no added fragrances, it is especially suitable for skin which is prone to allergies. The soap creates a fine, creamy foam, is very mild and is also suitable for women for shaving armpits, the bikini zone and legs.
Cold Process. Soaps Made of Coconut Oil.
The soap manufactory Wiener Seifenmanufaktur produces soaps on a pure plant basis in a cold process. Although the term suggests otherwise, the cold process does not work completely without heat. However, the heat is not supplied from the outside, but arises naturally during the saponification process when Lye encouters oil - in the case of the Viennese soaps, the well-foaming and particularly compatible coconut oil is used. Thanks to this gentle, but also labor-intensive process, up to 15% of vegetable oils remain unsaponified and can develop their nourishing effect on the skin and hair. Additionally, the cold process makes sure that the moisturizing glycerin remains in the soap. Natural oils, plant extracts and fragrance essences, mainly from certified organic farming, enrich the soaps.
A Clean Performance. Wiener Seifenmanufaktur.
Formerly the soaps of soap maker Friedrich Weiss were the last handcrafted soaps in Vienna. Under the brand name "Stadlauer" the soaps made of coconut oil had many fans and not only the Viennese were enthusiastic about the fine lather. Although Weiss died unexpectedly in 2006, his intellectual heritage continued to live. Sonja Baldauf, who had originally planned to sell the Viennese soaps in Switzerland, worked together with a longtime employee of the soap mill to do everything possible to keep the ideas, demands and formulations of Weiss alive under the name of Wiener Seifenmanufaktur.
Today, the Wiener Seifenmanufaktur is a family business again: Baldauf's life partner is now - after a late training as soap boiler - solely responsible for the production. Some types of soap were taken over from Weiss. Meanwhile, many more are self-developed and constantly new ones are added to the range of the Wiener Seifenmanufaktur.
